Long-Range Facilities Planning

In an effort to ensure all of our students have learning environments that reflect current and future needs, a Long-Range Facilities Committee was formed in the spring of 2014. This group of community members and district staff were commissioned to study and discuss various issues and opportunities that lie ahead for our school district.  

Based on this work, the committee shared its recommendations (view the full report) with the school board in November 2014 on ways to enhance our facilities to better support our students and the needs of our community. 

The Long-Range Facilities Planning Committee was tasked by district administration and the school board to address the following:

  1. Develop a shared recommendation, with action steps and timelines regarding a preferred direction for the District’s facility needs in response to: The Bridge to Excellence; Changing demographics; Mechanical and operational needs; Building inequity issues across the district.
  2. Review and evaluate 10 years of long-term student enrollment projections and demographic data
  3. Review current grade configuration (K-6, 7-9, 10-12) and building capacity for each school
  4. Review student programming needs and the potential impact suggested changes would have on building use and capacity
  5. Discuss ways to incorporate more district learning spaces that support 21st century learning
  6. Examine financial impact and opportunities 

The school board shared the report with the community and gathered feedback from November 2014 through February 2015.
